Everyone’s heard of The Haunting of Hill House, and for good reason. It aired on Netflix in 2018 to great reviews. Jumping between the past and the present, the story follows a family before and after a tragic event in their home. Lynn Falconer, the costume designer, does a superb job contrasting the past and present—the 90s throwback outfits are amazing. This show is just as fun to watch as it is nice to look at. For a Haunting of Hill House costume, use simple coloured pieces and all the 90s clothing you'd like!

4. Dracula

Dracula, one of the most well-known monsters of all time, is making a comeback on Netflix this year. This 2020 show retells the story over three episodes, with exciting new special effects and costumes, creepy visuals, and gripping acting. Dracula blurs the lines between good and evil and shows the first vampire as a more complicated figure than we might have originally thought. This show has the same creators as Sherlock, so the visuals are superb. Dracula melds classic and modern styling, and the character still has his classic top hat, cape with red lining, and deep black suit! Use a simple vampire costume and you're all ready to become Dracula this Halloween.

5. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Following the success of Riverdale, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is also based off of the iconic comic book series. Sabrina Spellman is half-witch, half-human, and has to choose between her two worlds while trying to save her human friends from the truth. It’s a creepy teen drama that’s so fun to watch! And here, the witches aren’t wearing long black dresses—they opt for sweet short ones with dentelle collars. This show is giving new life to the modern witch! Use one of our witch costumes, or your own clothing with witchy accessories, to get the Sabrina look.

6. The Mist

Since Stephen King’s novel The Mist was published, many film and TV interpretations have been circulating pop culture. Netflix’s 2017 version is definitely one of the best: it’s more realistic, and the costume and set design are incredible. A small town in Maine is surrounded by a mysterious mist that seems to bend reality, and we get to learn more about the characters’ secrets as the show goes on. Choose your favourite character and make your own costume!

7. Black Summer

Black Summer was released on Netflix in 2019. Its eight episodes, originally based on a series of comics, follow the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. Rose, a young single mom, is separated from her daughter and is determined to find her and keep her safe—with some help along the way. If you like zombie shows, Black Summer is the place for you! It’s equally as heartfelt as it is scary—the zombies are dressed in pretty terrifying costumes. Just grab a zombie costume and you'll be good to go! Get ready for the second season!

8. Hemlock Grove

Hemlock Grove takes place in a fictional town in Pennsylvania. A handful of brutal murders have set the town on edge, and it’s up to a few teenagers to help set things right. The show draws a line between the rich and the poor for interesting class commentary among the horror. Based on a novel of the same name, Hemlock Grove explores both reality and the supernatural. If you’re looking for a new way to use your cheerleader costume, try dressing up as one of these characters!
